Before putting a pillow in washing, it is necessary to check how the synthetic filler will react to water and detergent. As a rule, the pillow is on sale with a small package in which the filler sample is presented. It can also be tested. If such sample is not present, it is possible to unstitch accurately a pillow on the one hand and to get a little silicone.

Before washing of a pillow it is necessary to learn, what inside a filler. If the pillow is filled with a chicken feather, then it cannot be erased. It is possible to wet only pillows with a filler from a feather or down of waterfowl.

We start cleaning of a peryevy pillow:

  1. On the sewing machine or manually it is necessary to sew two gauze sacks, and to put a gauze in some layers.
  2. From a corner of a pillow accurately to unstitch a bedtick, to put, and it is better to pristegat threads a gauze bag to a bedtick so that the feather or down moved to a bag.

When gauze sacks with a feather dry, it is just a high time to pay attention to a bedtick. Mirsovetov recommends it to wash well and after drying to take a slice of dry soap or a candle and to rub from a wrong side, and then to iron the hot iron. Such measures are necessary in order that the down did not filter through a bedtick. If there is no desire to potter with an old bedtick, it is possible to sew new and in the same way to process it soap or a candle.

After these actions the dry feather needs to be moved to a bedtick. For this purpose again it is necessary to sew a bag with contents to a bedtick and to move it. To sew up edge of a bedtick.
